Through our collaboration with the Vodafone Foundation, we worked with Pathfinder International to develop M-Mama, a program aimed at reducing maternal and newborn mortality and morbidity. As part of the program, we are leveraging Vodafone’s extensive mobile communications network to upgrade rural referral and transportation systems for pregnant women.
